Success for HBAC Ladies Team

Once again the HBAC Ladies were in fine form last Saturday, 17th September at the Alice Holt 10K event hosted by Farnham Runners.

The ladies were keen to defend their title having won this event last year. Sally Goble, Sofia Shearring, Donna Read and Lucy Pennant were the top scorers coming in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 159th respectively earning them enough points to secure the win. This was 16 year old Lucy's second only 10K race and she found herself under pressure even before the start as she was instructed by the other ladies to run as fast as she could in order to help win the team prize. In gratitude Lucy's grand effort was applauded loudly by the club as she stormed over the finish line having given it her all. What a star!

Individual age group prizes also went to Sally, Sofia and Donna in their respective categories. Lucy's Mum Sara Pennant also ran coming in a commendable 204th.

In the Men's race Club star Luke Shearring secured 2nd place winning him a prize. Next in was Graham McDougall 42nd, Paul Fleming 80th and David Bateman 131st.

Big Well Done to all!!
